Member Highlight: Joan Para

The picture was taken in 1942. Joan (who is in the second row, third from the right) and all those gals, except the Sergeant (who is to Joan’s right), had volunteered and were in Honiton, Devon (an area famous for lace making).  They were there for aptitude testing to determine to which jobs they would be best suited. Joan was assigned to Army Communications. She then went on to Bradford, near Leeds, for training and was eventually stationed in London, near Buckingham Palace. Joan served from 1942 to 1946.
